Editorial Reviews


“Witty, elegant whodunits. . . . With Aristotle and the Secrets of Life, Margaret Doody launches her characters into more troubled, and troubling, waters. Deftly weaving together known or likely facts of Aristotle’s biography, from different periods of his life, this time she projects the philosopher himself as the main character of the adventure. . . . There are powerful and sinister forces at work in Athens.”
-- Roderick Beaton ― Times Literary Supplement

“Eminently enjoyable.”
-- Colin Dexter ― author of the Inspector Morse mysteries

“Why did no one think of this before?”
Times (UK)

Aristotle and the Secrets of Life delves more deeply into Aristotle’s philosophy and provides a more intricate look at his school and studies. This book is filled with much more political intrigue and gives a clearer look at the aftermath of Alexander the Great’s conquest. . . . Much darker and more intricate.”
-- Natalie Kelley-Wilson ― Metapsychology Online Reviews
